hello and happy Monday! I have a cute & sweet Christmas card today :)
here's the inside!
This was a pretty simple card. I started by stamping the seals on gray cardstock (cut to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8") in My Favorite Things black ink and colored them with Copics. I masked them off and did some ink blending with Soft Stone ink over the grid stencil (I don't have very many stencils yet *hint hint Santa!* so the grid might be a weird choice here but I really wanted to ink up a stencil. so that's why the grid.) I stamped the mistletoe, hearts and sentiment. I added the baker's twine and then mounted everything on a red card base. I added glossy accents on the noses and the mistletoe berries. I added flocking on the white parts of the seal's hat and then as an afterthought I added some Wink of Stella shimmer to the seals. (Aren't they cute?! They were fun to color!)
Well my super busy weekend with parties, races, shopping, and a long to-do list got derailed when Bree & I both got sick on Friday. Instead we got absolutely nothing done and it was a very long and miserable weekend, and I might have broken my toe (at the very least I'll probably lose the toenail). So I am very happy that the weekend is over and that we're starting to feel better. This is a crazy week! My parents get here today (yay!) and then tomorrow we're heading up to Ocean City, Maryland for Thanksgiving! (I don't have to cook!) Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze out some time to make cards for the rest of the week tonight.
Have a fantastic day!
